Telltale Games releases first screenshots for Tales from the Borderlands

Telltale Games releases first screenshots for Tales from the Borderlands

The first screenshots of the collaboration between Gearbox Software and Telltale Games’ Tales from the Borderlands were released today. Slated to be released later this summer, the title will be true to Telltale form and be delivered to gamers as episodic content. Each chapter will cost $4.99 invidivually or you can purchase a seasons pass.

The content of the game is considered official Borderlands canon as it takes place after the events of Borderlands 2. The screenshots introduce players to two new characters: Fiona, a con-artist from Pandora, and Rhys, an employer of Hyperion Weapons. Each character has less than dubious agendas as they are certainly out for their own self interest. Along the way, players will meet up with some fresh faces but also encounter Zero the Assassin, who was a playable character in the last installment of Borderlands. As with all Telltale Games releases, the story will change depending on the choices the player makes. In this release, the story will be told from the perspective of Fiona and Rhys.

Lastly, just a few hours ago, producer Adam Sarasohn, from Telltale Games, took to the PlayStation Blog to announce that the loot that is discovered in the Telltale version will be “available to use in other areas of the Borderlands franchise.” No further details have emerged as to how this will be possible.

“Pandora has a wealth of stories to offer, and Gearbox wants them told,” Sarasohn wrote. “Telltale is going to collaborate with you through the choices that you make to get some of those stories out there, and to create a brand new Borderlands experience. If you play Borderlands simply for the sake of shooting stuff, then you might not be a fan of Tales, but if you enjoy being on Pandora, hanging out with and finding out more about all of the amazing characters, and/or you’ve enjoyed what we did in The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, then this might be a game series for you.”
